. thank you for your attention to this appointment. signed sincerely, nancy pelosi, house democratic leadership. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to clause 12-a of rule 1, the house will stand in recess subject t and his plan does not begin to solve our debt crisis. it increases spending. our plan meets these standards, cuts spending and paves the way for real job growth in our country. in the five weeks since we signaled our willingness to forge an agreement with the president, he's never put forth a plan to meet these standards. frankly, that's why we don't have an agreement today. the longer the white house slow walks this discussion, the closer our economy gets to the fiscal cliff and the more american jobs are placed in jeopardy. >> good morning. lings -- the president said on a daily basis that we should be passing a balance plan. but we continue to hear only discussion on one side of the ledger. it's always been about tax rates increases and nothing about spending. we insist, let's talk about a balanced plan, where are your proposals for spending cuts. even his advisors say a

americans. how -- the house leader, nancy pelosi, has a discharge petition to put extending tax cuts for the middle class on the floor. you're the vote counter. do you have enough votes? guest: we don't have enough votes to get the discharge petition out. i think the republican will hold out. the discharge petition makes a point but is often not successful. the republican may do that because as that article said, there are' in a box. they are now appear to be defending tax cuts for the rich even at the expense of tax cuts for 98% of americans and it's not a good place to be. that backup position has a lot of danger in it. if we go back to the debt ceiling fight where we literally are willing to use that as an economic weapon of mass destruction to get our way, and that's what the speaker's talking about, using the debt ceiling to force his view on the president with respect to the budget, there are enormous collateral damage consequences to using that tool because we default and america's never defaulted. we came within a bhiss consider of doing that in august -- within a whisker of

nancy pelosi spoke to reporters about the issue. she called the republican proposal "an assault on middle- class and seniors." >> good morning. here we are. thursday in december, the talk around here is what is going not at the negotiating table. is anything going on at the negotiating table? what is important, i think, is what is happening at kitchen tables across america. the relationship to decisions that are made here to what those discussions are. i think it is important to take a moment to see the context with which these negotiations are taking place. the middle class -- and we saw the republican plan, the proposal was an assault on a middle-class, seniors and on our future. when you look at kitchen tables across the country and how people are concerned about how they pay their bills, it is important to know that all of those decisions the mermaid to the economic security -- the decisions that are made have an impact on middle class families and on the prospects of the future for the young people and their families. when we listen to young people across the country, they

carney from the white house press room, nancy pelosi, and harry reid saying we still want to see what they're willing to do before we move forward. it's the same line we've heard for a long time, we're just closer to the deadline now. >> in harry reid's comments he seemed to give an indication of a timetable. did he seem optimistic or pessimistic about getting it done? >> he seemed pessimistic, which was funny because speaker boehner said he was optimistic earlier today. he said there wasn't a huge likelihood of a deal before christmas but i think right now people are sort of trying to temper expectations and put patients' bill of rights on the other party. when you hear the senate majority leader saying that he doesn't think it's going to be a deal and then blaming republicans, i think that's posturing and gaining further cooperation whereas if the -- while the white house feels it has the upper hand. >> how is the white house characterizing these talks and back channel scutions between the president and speaker? >> the exact quote they keep giving over and over again is the lines of

. in addition, the democratic caucus, under the leadership of nancy pelosi, went over that bill line by line three times. i remember it well. but let me get to the business at hand because, mr. speaker, i haven't seen an honest day's work in congress here in quite a while. earlier this year, a broadcastering company said it reported $320,000 a week to run the house of representatives, but the majority spent the money on shuttling us back and forth to washington and ask us to sit here and twiddle our thumbs. no more. it's time to get down to brass tax and give the american people a return on their multimillion dollar investment. we start here and now by passing the middle class tax cut. all we have to do is take up a senate bill. it's right there. noigs that we ought to really take up the violence against women act from the senate. not the house bill. the house bill did not include numbers of women in america under this act, native american women, gay women, immigrant women and we couldn't tolerate that. let's take the senate bill and pass it that bill has reduced domestic violence 67%. we ne
